Battlefront WWII Blitzkrieg Card Supplement
The Battlefront WWII2 Blitzkrieg Card Supplement expands the
Battlefront WWII Rules into the early war period. It provides new cards for the
German opponents in the Blitzkrieg campaigns of 1939 and 1940 (France and Poland), as well additional cards that
will allow you to recreate battles up through the German invasion of Russia in 1941.
The unit cards provided in this supplement augment those found in the Battlefront WWII Rules and the Late War Card Supplement, which contain many cards for the Germans, Russian, and British forces that remained essentially unchanged throughout the war.
The Blitzkrieg Period Players familiar with later periods of World War 2 will find that the Blitzkrieg era has a completely different feel. With a few noticable exceptions, the tanks and weapons that dominate the battlefield with long range and thick armor are not yet in service. While tanks are fragile and weapons are short range, infantry generally is not equipped with effective anti-tank weapons (and also suffers from "tank-fright" when confronting armor). The result is a much heavier reliance on maneuver to bring all of your short-range weapons to bear effectively. This era also shows why weapons like the T-34 and German 88mm AA/AT gun (which remained almost unchanged into the mid-war period) were so highly regarded. All of these factors make the early-war period an interesting and different addition for the World War 2 gamer.
